Before Form Tools 2.1.x, Option Lists were known as "Field Option Groups". Same idea, different name!
What are Option Lists?
Form Tools remedies this through the "Option Lists". Now, all identical field options are stored as a single group. To better understand this, imagine your form contained the following groups of fields:
Even though the name attributes of the fields are different and that due to the nature of the checkboxes and multi-select dropdown the user can select more than one option, the actual options in the fields are the same. Each of them have the same four options: Green, Red, Black and Grey, that have values: green, red, black and grey (note the lowercase).
Form Tools is smart enough to realize that all of these fields are identical and therefore should only bother storing them once. So, later on if and when you need to change the values for each field, you can do it one location only.
The following pages explain the various aspects of the Option Lists, starting with how they get added.
